an odd question for you both...

CONGRATULATIONS!!! Felicitaciones y buenos días de Texas, ¿cómo estás?
Since it is your 1 year anniversary on the road I thought you might like to share with us 'vicarious life-stylers' a few reflections on how you think this trip has altered your views on life, the universe and everything?
I know every one of my trips has left lasting changes on my psyche, but none were as long or as 'eventful' as yours has been so far, so....

Absolutely mate, we will have our one year take on life and The Heart Speaks, as you know we don't sugar coat stuff and fluff it up beautifully, we tell it exactly as we see it ... sometimes to our detriment but that is REAL life.

RTWing is hard on your relationship which takes WAY more effort to deal with ... add to that rainy days, accidents, rip-offs etc you have to be come stronger or you will fail.

Next few days will post up how we see it

nice job

Congratulations you two. Its June 22 that we left Vancouver for Inuvik. We just put the bikes in storage in Panama City until the end of September. Have to get home to work a bit. Can't wait for us to finally meet in SA. We glimpsed you on the road on the way to Dawson City, but we have not crossed paths since.

Thank you for coming along with us, our real part of our trip is just around the corner now and this is where our true interests lay.

Hoping the camera will capture some of the offerings.

Cheers

Andi & Ellen

What an epic journey and great RR.
Your tell it like you see it is refreshing.
Your ability carry on and overcome lifes challenges is inspirational.
The love and respect you each have for the other comes thru in your words and deeds.
It was a privilege to meet and spend a few days with you and wish you safe travels.
